Netanyahu: Cancelled Trip to US Sends Message to Hamas

Israeli Prime Minister Cancels Washington Trip in Protest of UN Ceasefire Call for Gaza Conflict

In response to the United Nations Security Council resolution calling for a ceasefire in Gaza, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has decided to cancel a trip by an official delegation to Washington. Netanyahu explained that this decision was intended as a message to Hamas, urging them not to rely on pressure tactics. He emphasized that the resolution and Washington’s abstention from the vote had emboldened Hamas to take a tough stance against Israel.

The delegation was originally intended to travel to Washington to discuss a potential military offensive against the city of Rafah in southern Gaza. President Joe Biden had requested Netanyahu consider the option of targeting Hamas in Gaza without a major ground offensive following the UN Security Council resolution’s approval. This move marked the first time since the conflict began that such support had been gained.

Despite the cancellation of the delegation’s trip, talks between Israel and Hamas are ongoing in Doha. The Israeli Prime Minister criticized Hamas for not being interested in negotiations for a ceasefire agreement, citing their extreme demands. The conflict between Israel and Hamas has resulted in significant casualties on both sides.
